This year, World Elder Abuse Awareness Day fell on Tuesday, June 15. Citrus County Support Services employees and volunteers gathered outside of the Citrus County Resource Center at the “Purple Pinwheel Garden” to bring awareness to this important subject.

Citrus County Support Services Brings Awareness to World Elder Abuse

Purple is the color for World Elder Abuse Awareness and Prevention. The purpose of the purple pinwheel garden is to get the attention of individuals passing by to remind them to report any suspected abuse of a senior — whether it is emotional abuse, physical abuse, financial abuse, or any form of neglect — to Adult Protective Services at 1-800-96ABUSE (1-800-962-2873). It is everyone’s responsibility to care for the most vulnerable in our community.
